Right From The Heart

Poetry about everything I feel strongly about. In simpler words, this collection of poems are about who I am, what i've been through and what I stand for. These are writings from my heart, and they ARE, right from the heart.


2. When It's Over

When it's over, we wind back the tape,

Waiting intently to grasp at the point in time,

when the fabric was pulled apart at the seams, 

Before we were left with the debris.

Perhaps it's easier to say, that not

every ship survives the high tides of the unpredictable vastness.

When it's over, we wonder about the possibilities,

Of what we could have been,

There's always pieces missing from the puzzle,

but there's always a future we miss, full of "what if's",

Too little time, and too many unexplored places on the map.

When it's over, we open the cupboard door,

to find the pile of missed chances and words we never said.

On top of the mess of my bedroom floor,

is your favourite shirt left behind in the same way as your heart,

That I wear as a reminder of innocence,

though I don't need any reminders of you.

When it's over, I wander along the tracks,

Waiting for the train that's never coming back, gazing 

at the mess that made us a masterpiece.

Do you remember the electricity between two strangers?

I hope you do, 

and when it's over, I hope you still treasure traces of me.
